French designer Mathieu Lehanneur has designed a shop and work space for Le Laboratoire in Paris, France.
The work space, called LaboBrain, consists of a concave screen for the user to scrawl ideas on while moving around it. A football-like seat allows for rest between frenzied bouts of creative thinking, while plants under a grid in the floor refresh the air.
The LaboShop sells objects conceived in the Laboratoire, but retracts into the ceiling at night to accommodate other activities in the space.
